Win Tickets to DreamGroup's Original Bridal Swap: April 27, 2014

Original Bridal Swap It’s back and better than ever! If you missed last year’s Bridal Swap, don’t miss it this year! It was quite an event and I hope to be back to check things out. Here’s what you need to know:

The Details

When: Sunday, April 27, 2014 – 11AM til 3PM (10:30 Early Bird Access)
Where: The Roundhouse Community Centre, Vancouver – map
Price: $12.95+tax General Access | $18.95+tax Early Bird (sold out!) | $15.95+tax at the door | Buy General/Early Bird tickets here
A portion of the profits will be donated to Streetohome.

So you’ve never been to the Bridal Swap? Basically DreamGroup Productions has made it easy for brides and vendors to sell gently used wedding gowns and items to frugal and eco-chic brides-to-be! Past brides can book a table and clear out all the wedding stuff that’s been taking over their closets at home… and so can vendors! I hear they have quite a bit of inventory to get rid of.

Original Bridal Swap

Original Bridal Swap You can also buy gently used wedding dresses at the Bridal Swap and organizers tell me brides have consigned quite a few designer dresses this year, among them big names like Vera Wang, Monique L’Huillier, and Maggie Sottero! Best of all, you’ll get them for a fraction of the original price! When you’re done shopping, you can also knock a few things off your wedding planning to-do list. There will be a select number of vendors on hand that could help execute your perfect wedding day. You can find the list here and some of them even have an exclusive deal for Bridal Swap attendees… check out the link to find out who!

For more information and to stay updated on what’s going to be at the swap, like the Original Bridal Swap Facebook Page and follow DreamGroup on Pinterest. This board serves as a sneak preview of what’s up for grabs on the 27th.
